Lydia | Senior

It’s sessions like these I feel old! Not only have I known Lydia and seen her grow up, but I also shot her sister’s senior photos a few years ago. I can’t believe now Lydia is weighing her options for schools and about to head out on her own adventure! We started her session at The Grove at Red Oak Lake campgrounds, where she has been involved with various camps and events that have happened there. We ended up in the newly booming Broad Ave Arts District, near an area that is close to Lydia’s heart where she has spent time working with Brinkley Heights Ministries and Street Reach, a ministry and program that serves the neighborhood in which they are located with a church, clothes closet, food pantry, school, and Bible Club ministry.

Watch out for this girl. She’s got big things ahead of her and ain’t nothin’ gonna stop her.

Whitney + Rei | Wedding

Joy, fun, love, and gratefulness… this wedding was full of these all plus some! Whitney and Rei are some of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met. They are 100 million % perfect with each other and I had a blast being with them as they truly celebrated with huge smiles, lots of laughs, and love outpouring to all who were there. Though it was off and on raining all day, these two didn’t let it dampen their spirits one bit. I’m so grateful for meeting such a great couple!

Thanks to my friend and great shooter, Mark Arnold, for coming in and shooting this with me! He nailed so many shots this wedding, with my favorites being Whitney & Rei entering with the crying flower girl and the 5 image series of their first dance!

Marlena + Ryan | Proposal

This just happened.

Meet Marlena and Ryan. They’re from California. Marlena and her family have always come to visit Memphis around this time of year and she has fallen in love with The Peabody Hotel, making mention several times of what a perfect place it would be for a proposal. Their parents kept a good plan secret and though Marlena might have suspected it, I think she was definitely surprised. They’ve known each other for almost their whole life, have been together for 5 years, and well… this is how their proposal happened!

Marlena & Ryan – 26 November 2014
